What makes Valco Wireless ANC Headphones special, is how they combined the best available components, added a touch of Finnish design and had Kesthouse, a famous Finnish mastering studio with over 20 years of experience to perfect the sound quality.
And all this for half the price of similar brand headphones. They dare to say, that Valco headphones offer you an unmatched bargain for your money along with a listening experience second to none in the wireless ANC headphones class.
Weighing only 250 grams, the Valco ANC headphones can be easily used for the whole day long. The memory foam earmuffs and the adjustable headband are covered with 100% faux vegan leather. As a Finishing touch, Valco has added some premium Walnut tree (real tree, not imitation) to the headphones.
Valco took the best ANC Bluetooth chipset Qualcomm had available and plugged it in. There are four microphones constantly monitoring the ambient and a top-notch DSP doing the ANC. Combined with Bluetooth 5.0 makes for a great sound.

Should you find yourself stranded on a desert island, you can use the ANC to filter out the annoying cricket sounds and other creepy stuff much longer you can survive without going full-on Bear Grylls and drinking your urine – and definitely, much longer your precious iPhone can last.
Google Assistant is built-in and on testing, it worked rather well. I was able to press a button and ask it various questions. It was also able to read out some notifications I got when I was on the bus. I didn’t have any problems making calls.
Dynamic 40 mm stereo elements combined with the programmable Qualcomm QCC3008 chipset and the configurations make for rich and textured sound. The highs are sharp, while the lows are punchy.

Hi, I am sorry but this is barely a review. The largest part I have already read om the Valco website and all you add is “Google Assistant worked rather well. I was able to press a button and ask it various questions. It was also able to read out some notifications I got when I was on the bus. I didn’t have any problems making calls” and “…and the configurations make for rich and textured sound. The highs are sharp, while the lows are punchy”. I think you can do better dan that!
You are completely right and we are in the process of updating this review after spending more time with the headphones.
Hello, do you think these are comparable with Sony XM3 or Bose QC35II, or is it better to just pay up and buy one of Bose or Sony?
What are you planning to use them for? Like if you’re commuting then I’d go Bose, as they have the best Noise Cancelling.
I wonder how these compare to the much more expensive Sennheiser Momentum 3, both in sound quality and noise cancelling quality (and amount of perceived ‘cabin pressure’). I think the Momentum 3 sound much better than any other NC headphones I’ve tried, but I’ve never tried the Valco’s.
cannot get any light to blink when recharging.
